WI DNR urges deer hunters to shoot feral pigs too

Madison, Wis. (AP) – If you’re a Wisconsin deer hunter who also
has a small-game license, the state invites you to shoot some feral
pigs this season.

The state Department of Natural Resources says feral pigs carry
diseases and are highly destructive. So the agency is allowing
qualified hunters to shoot any feral pigs they see during the
nine-day gun deer-hunting season.

There’s no limit to the number of feral pigs a hunter can shoot.
Landowners don’t need a hunting license to shoot feral pigs on
their own land. Anyone else can shoot one as long as they have the
proper license, as well as landowner permission if they’re on
private land.

However, hunters have to be sure the pigs are truly feral.
Domesticated pigs sometimes escape, and hunters who kill one can be
liable for its replacement cost.
